Posted 19 July 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has added additional flights to its Moscow route, bringing the total frequency to 21 flights per week between Doha and the Russian capital.

Commencing  August 2, the award-winning airline will introduce an extra daily flight on the Doha-Moscow route to meet growing demand to Moscow, a destination popular with both business and leisure travellers. The additional frequency will be served by an Airbus A320 aircraft. 

Moscow is renowned for its stunning architecture and iconic historical landmarks such as the Kremlin and Red Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Russian capital is a cultural treasure trove, famous for its symphonies, classical music, theatre and ballet, offering visitors a vast array of enriching activities to choose from.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “In celebration of going to Moscow together for 14 years, and as part of Qatar Airways’ ongoing efforts to expand our presence in Eastern Europe, we are very pleased to offer an additional frequency to this iconic city. Passengers from the Russian capital will have even more flexibility in travelling seamlessly through our Doha Hub, Hamad International Airport, to any of our destinations across our growing network, while travellers from all over the world will now have the opportunity to taste the delights of the Russian capital, as well as experience our renowned world-class service.”

The airline, which in August will celebrate 14 years of direct service to Moscow, first began flying to the Russian capital in 2003.
